I do this by using AirPort utility to turn off WiFi on the second Time Capsule. Configure it for: turn off the network which places it in bridge mode allow setup over WAN if you want to plug the WAN port of the second AirPort into one LAN port of the Time Capsule that runs as a router. Leave all other settings default (so wipe restore the settings) and ...

Funny I had the same problem after updating to my OSX (Macbook Pro 13") and kept having the same issues over and over again to no luck... then I plugged in my computer to the router via CAT5 cable... connected to the net.... and tried the wifi again... and it worked. Weird.

Hold alt and click the Wi-Fi symbol in the menu bar; in the extended menu does it list the Internet as reachable? If not, it can be a external problem or perhaps there is a secondary login required on a splash website or something.

Apparently it's possible to enable MAC filtering using the Internet Sharing feature in Snow Leopard. Here is an extended description how to do it and at the same time overcome some flaws of the sharing implementation of SL. Essentially you have to add an additional key/array in the /etc/bootpd.plist containing the MAC as string: .... ...

The advantage is you can locate the airport potentially closer to you than the modem. The disadvantage is you need to set it up and perhaps string an ethernet if you wish to avoid delays of wirelessly extending a network. If I could, I would always run an ethernet cable (gigabit if possible, but 100 is usually faster than any WiFi consumers use in practice) ...

So it saved about 10 networks and mine was at the bottom. I removed all networks and unchecked the box. Back to the from page I just added my network and it works ...

The issue was Discoveryd component in Yosemite which was causing the problem. Apple replaced the component with mDNSResponder in 10.10.4 which solved the issue. If you are running 10.10 to 10.10.3, you should upgrade immediately to 10.10.5 which is more stable with plenty of bug fixes.

But if you separate the two by SSID, giving you a dedicated 5Ghz and dedicated 2.4Ghz band, does it still transmit on both of those simultaneously to separate devices? Yes (non-issue if the Airport Express units connect on 5GHz). ...so I'm just curious if there's anyone familiar with this or if it's even necessary. I've had various Airport ...

Is your Airport the 'last hop' before the ISP? Straight into the modem, no other router between you & them? If so, then asking Google 'what's my IP address?' will show it. That address is the 'border' between you & the outside world & in fact it kind of is partly at your Airport & partly at the next hop, your ISP, insomuch as it's your ...

It will work wirelessly if you are able to get Wifi from some of the old routers. In other words: you need Wifi signal from your existing network for both your AirPort Express and the Apple device to use AirPlay in this configuration. The Airport Express will work on client mode and will not extend your network, but it will allow AirPlay. This is because ...
